Much tougher than I thought.

You need to indicate that these statistics represent every player in the history of the MLB. I assumed active players at first.
Oct 1st, 2009 at 21:21 GMT
You should probably cut the amount of time. You could name every country that could conceivably have baseball in that amount of time.

fun quiz but I agree with the two comments above.
Oct 2nd, 2009 at 01:41 GMT
Agreed. 1) Great quiz. 2) cut the time down by at least 2 minutes. 3) state that it is every player in history.
Oct 2nd, 2009 at 03:55 GMT
So you guys thought there were over 15,000 active major league baseball players then?

Who knew so many limeys played in the majors? Blimey!

I am actually surprised that Canada has so few. The Irish must have been immigrants, don't cha think?
Oct 2nd, 2009 at 22:37 GMT
Well, if this is every player ever, then we're missing some countries, I'm sure.
Oct 3rd, 2009 at 00:46 GMT
@Linux: I assume a cutoff was made somewhere--maybe only countries that had 10+ players? It would be interesting to see a list of ALL countries that have produced players, but I bet that's a pretty long list. Over a hundred years, I bet you get a variety of people. AND, I agree with all of Goober's critiques.

@thelargeone: I'd have thought Canada's numbers would have been higher, too, but it looks like they're on the rise. 20 of those 246 are currently playing (that's almost 10% ... and MLB has been around for how long??) plus over a hundred Canadians are currently in the minor leagues and over forty were drafted in 2009. This is clearly a golden age of Canadian baseball. :)

Way too much time.
Oct 6th, 2009 at 19:41 GMT
There are countries missing as the quiz is for countries with 10 or more players ever in the major leagues.There are 18 countries with just 1 player from that country to play professional baseball,including somebody born on a ship out to sea.
Oct 10th, 2009 at 00:09 GMT
WAY WAY TOO MUCH TIME. This should be much shorter time.
Oct 21st, 2009 at 19:26 GMT
Interestingly, the last MLB player from Ireland retired in 1945, and the second last retired in 1918! which explains why it is the least gotten answer.
Oct 24th, 2009 at 04:59 GMT
Baseball was a very popular way for Irish immigrants and the children of Irish immigrants to assimilate into American culture
Oct 25th, 2009 at 19:31 GMT
@moegolrberg: The Braves have an Irish reliever on the team right now. Eric O'Flaherty.
